Zlatan Ibrahimovic wants to stay at Manchester United, his agent Mino Raiola has told talkSPORT.

Ibrahimovic, 35, will be free to leave Old Trafford at the end of his contract in the summer, but United have the option of offering him another one-year deal.

But with a knee injury possibly ruling the striker out of action until the New Year, his future remains up in the air.

Ibrahimovic has been linked with a move to MLS club LA Galaxy, although Raiola has said he wants to stay in Europe.

And asked whether the player would like to remain at United, his agent said: “Oh, yes.

“He wants to stay in England, he wants to stay at the top and if he sees that he can be a valuable asset for Manchester United, then why not Manchester United?

“He can be a valuable asset for some other top clubs also. But I think it is respectful to talk to Manchester United and to see what all parties want.”

Ibrahimovic scored 28 goals in 46 games for United following his move from Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

The knee injury ended his season in April and he missed the Europa League final victory over Ajax, but he has begun his rehabilitation after undergoing successful surgery in the United States.

Raiola said Ibrahimovic would have plenty of takers if United did not offer him an extension, adding: “We have a lot of offers and ideas and we have to evaluate them.

“He has had a fantastic time at Manchester United and it is up to the club and myself to see what the future brings. For now, it is important he recovers well and then we will see.”

Meanwhile, Raiola said he believes the £89 million paid for Paul Pogba represented a good deal, adding: “I think that Pogba was a cheap buy if you see the market now.”
